About the property

Morada Sol Holiday Villas

Morada Sol is a large, enclosed property, in a rural setting near Cascais, 3km from Guincho beach. It is only 4km to the motorway, making Lisbon accessible in less than 30 minutes. Cascais and Sintra are just 10 minutes away.

With a large swimming pool and beautiful grounds in a 5000m2 estate, close to the beach and the many attractions of Cascais, Lisbon and Sintra, Morada do Sol offers an ideal setting for a perfect holiday: peace and privacy among the beauty and tranquility of nature but with all you might want close by. There is ample secure parking inside the property. Within the large private grounds you will find a ball games area, swings, many secluded corners and peaceful rural and sea views.

Morada Sol has two villas in its grounds which can be let as 4 independent units. All units have their own separate access, living room, kitchen and outside space.

We can cater for groups from 2 to 30 people at Morada Sol.

For more information visit our website.

Carbon-neutral holidays: Morada Sol is committed to preserving the beautiful Sintra- Cascais National Park in which it is located: a tree is planted for every booking through the Oxigénio initiative run by the local municipality. Guests receive a certificate dedicated to the person of their choice; during their stay they can visit the plantation area and get involved with the initiative if they wish. This is the perfect way to offset carbon emissions during the holiday, and feel you are contributing to a greener future.

The large, covered pool means the water is warm enough for you to swim from April to November although you are free to use it all year round; sliding doors allow you to catch a cooling breeze in the summer months. The extensive and well-kept gardens with their grand pine tree drive and many areas and spaces of different character have wonderful displays of colour for most of the year and the mature palm trees provide delightful summer shade. Help yourself to fresh lemons, oranges, figs and pomegranates from the orchard, all biologically produced.

In winter, relax by a log fire and contemplate the view down a green and unspoilt valley to the sea, or the mystical Sintra hills behind. Enjoy the outdoor ball games area and swings.

Licensed member of Lisbon Tourism Board: Morada Sol is a member of 'Turismo de Lisboa', part of Portugal’s official tourism board, which promotes quality licensed accommodation in the Lisbon area. Guests can therefore rest assured this is a bona fide quality rental property, and that safety standards are abided to. Morada Sol is the only holiday rental self-catering property to be fully licensed with the 'Turismo de Lisboa' in the Cascais area.

Surfing and bodyboard holidays: We are only 3km from the world famous Guincho beach which has optimum conditions for surfing, and we have one if the best surfing shops in our village; there is a good surfing and body board school in Guincho beach where you can improve your skills or equipment can be rented.

This secluded, tranquil and private 5000m2 estate is fully fenced in and reached through automatic gates leading to a beautiful pine tree driveway. All units in the estate are well maintained and comfortable. The relaxed 'rural chic' atmosphere provides the ideal setting to recharge your batteries and enjoy the simpler pleasures of life.

Morada Sol can be rented on an exclusive basis to host events such as 'zen' days, retreats, private parties, and corporate team building.

Every group is personally welcomed and given an insight of the area, tips and recommendations. We can offer additional services on request, such as massage, meal preparation, 'take-home-chef' and additional cleaning. Retreats can also be arranged.

About Morada do Sol

I am Italian and lived in Italy, Portugal, England and Hong Kong. We purchased this property when we returned to Portugal as a life project. When the children went to university in England Morada do Sol became too big for us and we decided to let it exclusively to tourists so that more people could enjoy it the way we did.

Morada do Sol purchased this villa in 2006

Why Morada do Sol chose Parish of Alcabideche

We have had many happy groups and families at this properties who brought home very special memories. Many return regularly and bring with them new guests!

What makes this villa unique

We were a group of 28 students and had an amazing stay! Everything was clean and furnished with lovely details. The estate had a perfect location: near to te grocery store, not far from the beach and cascais and lissabon were reached easily. We could not have imagined a better place to stay! Thank you

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback which is always appreciated! Indeed we were a little nervous welcoming a large group of students but everything went very well and this group was a delight to welcome. Morada Sol is a great location for reunions of people of all ages, due to the space and privacy provided.

Beautiful Place to stay for big Groups

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place for a bigger group. Quiet and with lots of space, it is very close to a supermarket and nice restaurants/pizzerias. The lovely houses are warm and welcoming. The view to the sea is beautiful and there are bus connections to the nice city of Caiscais and Sintra. The people are very nice and a transfer from the airport was organised for us. I can't recommend this accommodation enough.

We hope to see your group again!

amazing villa, excellent staff

  • 5 of 5

16 people came for the UK to stay for the weekend on a company outing. The villa was amazing and is perfect for big groups. The staff couldn't have been more helpful in getting us around and recommending places to visit and eat. They really took care of us and made our stay very special. I would recommend the wine tasting at the local vineyard. Highly recommended.

The village of Malveira da Serra is less than five minutes walk away, with shops and good restaurants. It retains its traditional charm, and has long been sought after by wealthy Portuguese and international property owners due to the beauty of its setting, with the coast stretched out below, and the forest and mountain above. This is an ideal place for nature lovers, being in the Sintra-Cascais natural park where building is very restricted. There is good walking from the village, with an abundance of wild flowers, birds and animals. Guincho beach, world renowned for its surfing, is 3 km away. Sintra, a world heritage site with its castle, palaces and gardens set in lush vegetation and enjoying ravishing views is a lovely 15 minute drive across the mountain. The coastal resort of Cascais is 10 minutes away, where you will find superb beaches, restaurants, night-life and shopping, as well as a charming old town with rewarding site seeing. The centre of Lisbon is 30 minutes by car.

Golf: Six of Portugal’s best golf courses are within a fifteen minute drive, offering new and surprising landscapes, along with first class services and facilities. Portugal is a golfer’s paradise where it is possible to play almost every day of the year, with plenty to offer both beginners and advanced players. There are six courses within a 8 km (5 mile) range, with plenty to offer beginner and advanced players. Oitavos Golfe, Quinta da Marinha, Penha Longa, Estoril, Beloura and Estoril-sol are all first rate courses within a quarter of an hour. There are a further 11 courses within an hour’s drive.

Ruben, one of your hosts, is a single-figure handicap and has 20 years experience in the local courses. Ruben can give you precious tips on every course and help you plan a memorable golfing experience.
